Pros: Sharp, IS is very good, close focus 24cm, quiet USM focus
Cons: Bright points of light show slight coma at image corners, a bit expensive.
Opinion: I use this lens on a 600D crop frame camera so it is 56mm to me. This lens takes very sharp images even at f2. The 8 point sun stars it produces look great. The IS has allowed me to take sharp images hand held down to 0.8sec. Although it is a lot quieter to focus than the smaller 35mm f2 the USM motor still can be heard when focusing. This is a great street photography lens.
The following opinions have been automatically translated with Google Translate.
Pros:Nitiezza already at TA, Stabilizer (but not from 4 stops), AF, size, construction.
Cons:Stabilizer not very effective and lack of tropicalization I do not feel the need. The paraluce buys it with a few euros.
Opinion:Purchased to complete the trio of fixed lenses (35mm, 50mm and 100mm macro), to be combined with the zooms in my possession, to date it is the lightest and most compact lens in my possession after the Canon EF 40mm stm pancake. These factors, together with the good versatility of the focal, the reliable AF in every situation and the excellent sharpness already starting from TA, which further improves to excellent levels at f/4-5.6, make it the ideal lens to always keep attached to the machine body for uses ranging from the street to the portrait shots set etc., etc. The stabilizer, more likely from -2 than from -4 stop, is a surplus that helps in shooting with difficult lighting or at night, but that guarantees stabilized shots really usable with times of 1/8s or better 1/15s. I honestly do not like to take photos in the rain and even used in dusty environments showed no problem, so I do not feel the need for the lack of tropicalization. As far as I'm concerned it's a highly recommended purchase.
Opinion:It's the first lens to buy, probably. And even for those who are not novice, it is a lens to have for the characteristic portableity, which no open prime lens possesses. The colors, blurring and contrast are not entirely comparable to prime L, but at this price you might ask? Recommended, everyone.
Pros:Sharp, light, versatile, stabilized, fast AF, price.
Cons:to write one: no lampshade
Opinion:Honestly I fell in love with this lens, I put it on 6D and I never took it anymore. I am not a professional photographer and my outings are mainly on Sundays with the family. Carrying my backpack with all the stuff clearly tired me. but I didn't even want to give up taking pictures with my cell phone... So I needed something light, sharp, versatile (to do everything unpretentious) and stabilized... he has all this and it's cheap. What to say... Perfect! I take pictures of my children, close-ups, landscapes, interiors... all souvenir photos of course... and something more if you need... If you have the same needs as me, it's no better... otherwise go on something else. The sharpness, however, is surprising... the fixtures are the fixed... 9/10 rating (10/10 or perfection... does it exist?)
Opinion:I have been a proud owner of this lens for two years now and I can tell you that I find it impossible for me to change it with a brighter or sharper 35 (the mind goes to 35 1.4 canon and sigma art). Every time I'm there ready to change I find myself seeing the weight of the papables and their respective cost and I say (in my way, rightly) the game is not worth the candle. It has a fantastic portability, with the street you go unnoticed. Great sharpness as well as the contrast and crispness of the color. Stabilization that others do not have and that is very useful in many situations. Then the price... new costs 500 euros, it's a missed L series in my view.
